4 Aces GC LIV Golf Team
The launch of the LIV Golf Invitational Series came with 48 players and a total of 12 teams, with each team having a specific name, a captain and branding.
One of those teams is 4 Aces GC, which has been the most successful of the LIV Golf teams in the early stages of the series.
4 Aces GC is captained by Dustin Johnson, who is arguably the best player to have joined LIV with two Majors under his belt, 24 PGA Tour victories and a total of 135 weeks atop the Official World Golf Ranking. It came as a huge surprised when Johnson was announced as a LIV player, with the American reportedly offered $125m to join the series.
VIDEO: WHAT IS LIV GOLF?
His 4 Aces GC team is currently an all-American quartet, with Patrick Reed, Talor Gooch and Pat Perez making up the side. Gooch, Reed and Perez joined the team at the second event in Portland and they went on to win there as well as in Bedminster at the third event. Any fees for Reed and Gooch were not reported, but Pat Perez was said to have received $10m. He described joining LIV as like "winning the lottery."
The team was originally made up of Johnson, Oliver Bekker, Shaun Norris and Kevin Yuan at the LIV opener in London but it was all changed up for round two in Portland.
